District 7210 News & Updates
Have you heard about the two great events coming up in our District?

Rotary Leadership Institute

Saturday, November 4th, the Rotary Leadership Institute, also known as RLI is coming back to Mount Saint Mary's College in Newburgh.  RLI is for new Rotarians, long time Rotarians, Rotarians interested in leadership, Rotarians interested in learning more about Rotary, and did we mention Rotarians? 
 
This year they are currently taking registrations for Year I, Year II and Year III, as well as the Graduate course.  The Graduate course changes each year, so there's something for everyone!  And, if you are a Rotarian who has joined in the last three years, and this is your first time attending RLI, you will be reimbursed your registration fee after the event!

Our beautiful Autumn weather belies the tempest and travail of our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Residents of these islands and others devastated by an especially brutal hurricane season will need our help to recover and rebuild. Please give generously to the Rotary Foundation’s Donor Advised Funds set up specially to respond to these recent events.

Please remember that October is Polio Awareness Month. Clubs around the district are planning special events in order to bring us closer to our goal of eradicating this dreaded disease once and for all.

Other important upcoming events are the Zone 24 & 32 Conference in Hartford, Conn.  with special events planned for Young Professionals, Future Leaders, and a special Luncheon with RI President Ian Riseley on Friday. You can go to the Zone 24 & 32 website for details.

November 4th is Rotary Leadership Institute at Mt. St. Mary’s College in Newburgh, NY. This is an opportunity to learn and share techniques and strategies for becoming a more effective leader and strengthening your club.

Our Rotary Foundation Brunch will be held at The Thayer Hotel on November 5th. Come and celebrate with us our District Rotarians’ generosity at this historic venue on the grounds of West Point.

A note of respect and appreciation to our Past District Governor Louis Turpin who spent three weeks in Texas aiding victims of Hurricane Harvey and Gary Siegel and the Liberty Rotary Club for organizing and implementing a relief mission to the people of Friendswood, Texas also affected by the hurricane.

Service Above Self Reigns.

Yours in Rotary,

Dear Felllow Rotarians,
 
The southern United States and the Islands of the Caribbean are experiencing an unprecedented assault from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. The scope of the destruction is difficult to comprehend. One thing is sure that residents of these areas will need our help to recover.
Fortunately, Rotarians are working hard to provide assistance.
 
ShelterBox USA has been hard at work in Texas and the Caribbean to help and is currently in Florida waiting to see how and where they will be needed as Hurricane Irma bears down on the state.  You can find updates and ways to donate hereYou can also continue to see updates from PDG Louis Turpin on the District 7210 Facebook page here.
 
Our fellow Rotarians in Liberty New York have combined forces with Operation Endeavor and SUNY Sullivan to get much needed medical and clean up supplies.  You can find out more about the supply drive here and updates from Operation Endeavor and Liberty Rotarians in Texas and Florida here
 
The Rotary Foundation has set up a 'Donor Advised Fund' to support Rotarians who will be administering aid in the hardest hit areas over the coming weeks and months. They are poised to lend a hand to people in dire need.  You can find out more information on these funds here.
 
 They deserve your generous support.
 
Yours in Rotary,
 
District Governor Jim Damiani
